Although The Sherwood Valley Rancheria of Pomo 

Indians raised concerns in May about possible 

damage to their historic cultural site at risk due to the Willits bypass construction, CalTrans removed all top soil, installed up to 1,500 wick drains every 3 feet  to 

80 feet down and then placed 3 feet of fill on top of 

the historical site.

However, according to CalTrans spokesman Phil Frisbie "There is no indication that the site was destroyed, We know this: the site is still there, mostly intact, and nothing was taken out," says Frisbie. However, tribal archaeologist Lee Claus said "The site was not just 

destroyed it was "eviscerated,"  

Tribal Chairman Mike Fitzgerral is requesting CalTrans stop all dirt disturbing operations immediately and to consult" with the tribe as required by law. 

CalTrans archaeologists located the site in 2011 but 

in 2012, someone in CalTrans removed it from the list of cultural sites to be protected.   "We respect the

 tribe's concerns and will redouble our efforts to monitor and safeguard cultural resources moving forward," said a CalTrans statement issued Sept. 25.



Six of the nine members of the board of directors of 

the Redwood Coast Senior Center resigned by the 

end of last Fridays meeting.

More than 150 people turned out, the vast majority to support Executive Director Charles Bush. The board voted last week 4-2 with two abstentions to fire Bush, but the firing was 

never legally authorized.

Kathleen Johnson, president, James Graham, vice 

president, Sandra Donato, Gin Paul Kremen, Ronalie Silveira and Lizette Weiss all announced resignations and only Graham and .Kremen attended the meeting.

Bushansky encouraged people to apply for the six 

open board seats. He promised that anyone who seeks to join the board will be contacted and interviewed.

 The annual meeting was rescheduled for the last 

Friday in October at the Senior Center at, 1 p.m. 

Watch for more details in the Oct. 10 edition of the 

Fort Bragg Advocate.







Robert Preece, the father of a Fort Bragg Dodgers fan, Jonathan Denver, who was fatally stabbed 

Wednesday following a Giants  game made a public plea for witnesses after San Francisco’s DA  released a suspect because of a lack of evidence. Denver’s 

father spoke outside the Giants’ stadium, before 

Sunday’s game with the San Diego Padres.

The suspect, Michael Montgomery, 21, of Lodi, was 

released from custody Friday night.

Gascon said police had not spoken with any 

independent witnesses who may have seen the fight Wednesday night. Denver’s father, Robert Preece 

and others with them that night saw bystanders using cellphone cameras. “We’re calling on them to come

 forward to help both families find out what happened.”

Denver who lived in Fort Bragg was stabbed to death after attending a game with his brother, father and two others to celebrate his father’s 49th birthday. Several of Denver’s extended family from Fort Bragg were 

also heading to San Francisco .






The effort to recall controversial Lake County Sheriff 

Frank Rivero has failed because there were not 

enough valid signatures submitted to place a recall 

before voters. The recall needed 7,026 valid 

signatures from registered voters to place it on the 

ballot. They submitted nearly 7,800 signatures but 

about 2,000 were invalid.

Rivero said he wasn't surprised by the failure and had never wasted his time worrying about or fighting the


His opponents say they don't see the recall's shortfall as a failure.

Over 7,000 Lake County residents signed petitions to remove the incumbent sheriff. This clearly 

demonstrates that Mr. Rivero's days as sheriff are 

numbered,” Brian Martin, a former Sheriff's lieutenant and candidate to replace Rivero, said .
